New Dec. preliminary draft of the new charter for the Greater _Vew York has been and was made public Thursday. The com- mission before submitting1 the charter to the legislature will hold public hear- ing's from January 4 to 10. The pre- liminary charter divides the city into five the Richmond and Queens. The central government of the will be in the hands of a municipal assembly of two houses. A lower house of 104 members elected from sen- atorial and upper house of 37 members elected from council districts euil lia11' to a number of prom- created by the charter. There will be Jnent college professors and American Susjiet-t in Given J-Jitfht Years in ITisoii. Deo. The reunited tri- bunal which judged the proceedings against Julio a American citixcu charged with conspir- acy against the Spanish met Saturday for the lirst time after b an adjournment for the Christmas holi- days. The iiid'a-s decided that San- fr guily was guilty of a modified quali- fication of the crime of which he was accused and sentenced him to eight years' and one day imprisonment. Sanguily was arrested with 30 including-many members of well-known families of and confined in Morro castle. An attempt was made to try him by but through the efforts of Consul Ramon 0. Wil- liams Sanguily's American citizenship was established and he was given a civil which resulted in his sen- tence to life imprisonment at hard la- bor in the mines of Africa. The case was appealed to the supreme court at Madrid. The grounds upon which i the United. States government inter- vened in his behalf were that his trial by a military tribunal did not accord with the terms of the Spanish-American and he was granted a new trial by the supreme resulting ns above announced. It is extremely prob- able that another appeal will be made to the higher the defense dur- ing the proceedings having vainly urged that the tribunal was illeq-allv consti- since six judges should have pre- and not five.

According Ui union mr jj every member of the conference every officer in the union and SOO of the rank and file have been refused and many more 7 dismissals are expected before the end is reached.

It is said that this may be obviated by drop- ping a lump of sugar into the pot it is put away.
